Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • Movie Goof (revealing mistake): When the 20mm Cannon opens up on the Americans climbing on the disabled Tiger, it is obvious that the exploding soldiers are dummies, as they don't even move despite a five second advanced warning. Also, even the live actors seem to not bother to jump off the tank and disperse despite the said five second warning. This includes the Paratrooper who spotted the weapon and turned to run, but stops for four seconds while Captain Miller announces the same discovery.
  • For the initial fighting scenes in the sea, spare ammunition carried by the actors was made from wood, as metal was too heavy.
  • The Omaha Beach scene cost $11 million to shoot and involved up to 1000 extras, some of whom were members of the Irish Army Reserve. Of those extras, 20-30 of them were amputees issued with prosthetic limbs to simulate soldiers having their limbs blown off.
  • Selected as the opening film at the 55th Venice Film Festival in 1998.
